You can socialize with your friends while your best friend plays with other furry friends at Bark Bar, a new dog park/bar/coffeehouse concept that finally opened in northwest Denver after many delays.

Catherine Peters came up with the concept of Bark Bar, a place where you can drink and play with your dog -- and Michael Faber signed on as a partner. "She and I got linked up together and this is what I do as a profession," he explains. "We combined her great idea and my know-how and made it a reality."

Bark Bar official opened on December 29, and "it's been great having the opening kinks worked out and the unwritten rules decided," Faber says. "So far, a successful opening."

The bar is open daily from 10 a.m. to late in the evening, and features eighty craft beers, a full bar, coffee and plenty of seating, not to mention a large off-leash dog run. But while it's obviously a place to bring your four-legged friend, Faber says that "dogs are not a necessity to still enjoy Bark Bar" -- and promises that it can be a great watering hole for humans, too.

Bring your dog to a bar? I guess it's better than leaving the poor thing tied to a pole outside while you have a meal with your hipster pals.

When visiting Cornwall, England, this summer (full of dog-lovers), we were struck by how much of a fixture dogs were in many of the pubs. Signs clearly posted outside: "Muddy Paws Welcome!"

Elizabeth McKnight is trying to save Jason Joyce the heartache of having his dogs impounded by the City of Denver. I think you might have misread her post. She clearly loves all breeds and wants breed-specific laws abolished.

I'm not a dog person but I am an idea person. This is pretty smart.

Elizabeth is part of the problem with pits..they are not inherently mean dogs, it's the owners. Do not punish the breed.

Please don't! It is within the city of Denver limits so you are putting your dogs in danger! Until we get rid of breed-specific laws, stay in those suburbs.

You're right. We should ban anyone crazy enough to own a pitbull from entering the city.

Where pitbulls are free to kill little poodles and Chihuahua without repercussions.
